Personal debt level concerns are overblown…! MORTGAGE BROKER NEWS

There’s a lot of talk in the media about Canadians carrying too much debt.   We’re getting hammered with messages of ‘record high personal debt levels’.   It’s true.  Our mortgage balances are higher, car loans are higher, student loans are higher, personal loans and lines of credit balances are higher.


There’s a lot of talk in the media about Canadians carrying too much debt.   We’re getting hammered with messages of ‘record high personal debt levels’.   It’s true.  Our mortgage balances are higher, car loans are higher, student loans are higher, personal loans and lines of credit balances are higher.

Is this a problem?  Are Canadians in trouble?  Is this a reason to panic?  Let’s try to answer…

Well, here’s one very interesting stat that might crush that statement once and for all.   Canadians, on average, spend 14% of after-tax income on personal debt. 

Did I surprise you?   I’ll bet most people thought that number would be way higher given all the negative reports in the media. 

Do things go up in price or do they go down?  Obvious answer, they go up in price.    So, we can agree that a trip to the grocery store, dry cleaners, clothing store, movies, restaurant, car dealer, etc, has all cost more than it did 20 years ago.    And yes, homes cost more today than they did 20 yrs ago.

Why wouldn’t we expect personal debt levels to rise?   Seems kinda silly, doesn’t it?

Hey, here’s some more stats..  Defaults and arrears haven’t climbed, they have dropped.  That’s right..  the latest stats from the Canadian Bankers Association shows mortgage arrears are 0.27%... This is very close to our all-time low!!

Look, record low interest rates are playing a big part in our debt levels.  We are borrowing higher amounts…however, our ability to service these debts is still very good.  Isn’t it logical to assume that our debt level will also climb?

SOME ADVICE

You shouldn’t borrow money with a reason…  just because money is cheap doesn’t mean you should start spending foolishly.  Canadians have been pretty good about how they spend.  Borrowing to invest is good.  Buying  a home is good.. with a long term horizon, not short flip.   This is wise borrowing and investing.  The last time I looked, home prices have been going up for…… oh, the last 100 years!
